THE SINGLE PREPOSITIONTHAT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER (Continued)
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by His grace, To reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. _ Galatians 1:15-17.
According to the New Covenant, there is a mystery that has been hidden from the ages which is Christ in you the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). The average person is not expecting Christ to be revealed from within them. Religion has meticulously put too much space between them and their loving Father and His Christ. It is almost as though one has never read Jesus’ prayer in John Chapter 17. "I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. – vv23, 26."
The Apostle Paul met the Resurrected Christ, our Blessed Lord, instead of another’s version of Him. In Paul’s separation, he learned the uninhibited Power of God that was unleashed in the Lord’s obedience unto death. In their initial meeting, Paul (Saul) was greeted with the question from the Lord (Acts 9:4), "Saul, Saul, why persecutes thou, Me?" The Lord Jesus and His Body had become One. With Paul’s subsequent name change came a new creation nature. He learned that Love neither excluded nor failed anyone.
